Medical Mission Trips to Haiti
Every year, St. Vincent’s HealthCare sends teams of doctors, nurses and other medical professionals to Haiti with medication and medical supplies to care for people who don’t otherwise have access to basic healthcare. Working together with the staff of St. Boniface Hospital in the village of Fond-des-Blancs, our team of caregivers provides an array of medical services for adults and children.
Haiti is the poorest country in the western hemisphere with more than 80% of people living below the poverty line. Nearly 70% are unemployed and more than half of all rural households don’t have access to clean drinking water. About half the population is undernourished and Haiti has a child mortality rate that is more than 11 times higher than the U.S.
